HEP’s mission is to provide homeless and low income individuals and families with housing, food, clothing and support services necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life.
In 2009, 1,078 clients were housed in our emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing. Over 70,000 meals were served in our newly remodeled kitchen. Our unique on-site program, Morton Plant Mental Health Outreach, saved over $2 million by avoiding 505 hospital ER visits. Our on-site full-service Free Dental Clinic provided an estimated $237,000 in dental care to homeless men and women.
